Equine Assisted Learning
EAL is a professional field in which horses are used to help facilitate the learning and growth experiences for participants. The focus of our EAL leadership programs involves the use of non-riding activities that demonstrate common workplace scenarios.
The EAL model assists individuals to learn about themselves, others and group dynamics by participating in activities with the horse and then processing patterns and strengths of the group and how these may relate to the workplace setting. Through a collaborative experiential process, participants use experience, reflection, generalization, acquired knowledge and problem solving to facilitate learning.
We welcome the opportunity to design a program specific to your group or organization. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject of Leadership Development.
Journey to Leadership
